We've had trouble with our parsnips being very fibrous this year. We 
wonder what we did wrong. Seems like we did the same as usual, except 
maybe harvested them a bit late (it was January). Do you know if we 
should have harvested before the solstice, or before the weather got 
warm after being cold? Do you know if some varieties are more prone to 
getting fibrous? If so, which ones are least prone? Zone 7 here, central Virginia. I&#39;d particularly like to hear from people with a similar (changing) climate.<br><br>Pam, Twin Oaks Community<br clear="all"><br>-- <br>
